I ended up giving it (reluctantly) to my mother in law. ( I really wanted to keep it.) If you are a first timer to cables, this is the project for you.
We use our cookie press to make cookies every Christmas. Just as my mother did for us and her mother did for her. Always using the camel, the tree and the wreath disc. This year we tried another disc after seeing a friends.
You press it into one long strip, sprinkle with the nonpareils, (which just by chance are small enough to get caught in the ridges and don't roll off your cookie sheet!) and then cut it into the size of the cookie you want. (All before baking.) These were a great addition. I also think these would be great for a birthday party.
Christmas Press Cookies:
1 cup butter::3/4 cup sugar::2 egg yoks::1 tsp almond extract::2 1/2 cups flour::1/8 tsp salt::1/4 tsp baking powder. Cream butter, sugar, egg, extract, flour, salt and b. powder. Mix. Add food coloring (optional). Press. Bake 375˚ for 8 minutes.
Almost 2010. SO hard to believe.
